Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Warnaco Group, Inc. (“Warnaco”) (NYSE: WRC) to PVH Corp. for shareholders. Under the proposed sale, Warnaco shareholders will only receive $51.75 in cash and 0.1822 of a share of PVH common stock for each share of Warnaco stock owned. The deal is valued at approximately $2.9 billion and based upon PVH’s last closing price, shareholders are estimated to receive total consideration of approximately $68 per share.

The Warnaco sale investigation centers on whether Warnaco shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Warnaco stock, and whether Warnaco’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “because Warnaco shareholders will receive a combination of cash and PVH common stock for their shares, we believe that the transaction may undervalue Warnaco stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
